Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Chris, thanks! Dark mahogany with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is mostly of red fruits along with acetic notes, light caramel, brettanomyces, oak and alcohol notes. Taste is quite acidic, but less than I thought it would be considering some the reviews. There’s a lot of red fruits (mostly cherries) along oak, cognac, vanilla, caramel, brettanomyces and light spiciness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Mouth puckering. One of my least favorite from Anchorage or Crooked Stave. A little over the top acidity. Tasty, but a bit unidimensional.

HonkeyBra (3706) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a reddish color with a khaki head. Aroma of green apples, rubber bands, booze. Flavor is gross. Red wine, vinegar, booze, wood, rubber bands, green apple, tons of acid. Booze and acid is how I describe this. Slick mouthfeel. I had a solid 6 oz. pour of this and its almost unfinishable. This is gross. Not a good beer.

808s n FartRates review #5 this one courtesy of Cateman197
Pours a deep reddish brown with a small head.

The aroma is funky with a bunch of cherry. It’s earthy rich and oaky all around.

The flavor is tart with some sour fruit and burnt sugar. It’s got a bunch of tart cherry character & oakiness.

Neat.

Bottle at Sweet & Sour, Sätila, 2014-08-30. A bit hazy amber beer with almost no head. Cognac oak, sourish, caramell aroma. Sourish oaky cognac flavour with some tar, barnyard and leather notes. Nice one :-)

Dark plum appearance. Mild head. Smell is fantastic. So cognac and liquor sweetness. Grapey and prune and toffee. Super grape forward. Fig and plum with sugar cane Splenda and some banana runt. The liquor cognac is really easy to pick out. So nice in the finish

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Bottle cheers to the main man Adza. Pours clearish light brown with a sticky khaki bunch of bubbles around the side. The nose gives off a load of acidity and dark fruits with plenty of dates and sticky raisin sweetness. The cognac shines nicely without over powering at all. The taste is another story. Layers and layers. Coganc gives it a slightly oily feel where the acidity cuts through perfectly. Raisin-like sweetness, mild orange juiciness. Plenty of mild spices focusing on cinnamon. It has this tartness to it but the funk drives through to the finish. So much going on. This is incredible

_angst_ (3443) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle bought @ The Mikkeller webshop. Pours reddish brown with a frothy beige head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty, fruity and funky with dark bread, pink grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, passion fruit, moist soil, hay, barnyard, leather, raspberries, blackberries and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny bitter, malty, fruity and funky with dark bread, caramel, cereal, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, moist hay, barnyard, moist soil and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour , funky and fruity with dark bread, lemon juice, pineapple juice, passion fruit, moist hay, moist soil, leather, barnyard and lemon zest. Really interesting mix of an oud bruin and the tropical fruit funk of the Anchorage brett. Quite cool!

Serving: 22 oz. bottle. Medium to dark brown pour. Interesting nose of wood, funk, and berries. Plenty of funk in the flavor with notes of brett, red wine vinegar, wood, and berries. It reminded me of a mix of an Flanders brown and Flanders red in some ways. Interesting and tasty.
